With Garcia on guitar and Saunders on keyboard, the two began picking together on a regular basis in 1970.
吉他手加西亚和键盘手桑德斯两人在1970年开始就在一起合作。

You know it started as a weekly jam session at a small club in San Francisco.
就如同你所了解的,他们每周在旧金山一家小俱乐部表演即席演奏会。

And while he may not be as much of a “household name” as Garcia, Saunders was a successful session player and bandleader , having played with artists including Dinah Washington and Miles Davis.
而尽管桑德斯可能没有加西亚那么“家喻户晓”, 但在和包括黛娜·华盛顿和迈尔斯·戴维斯等在内的艺术家们同台演出后,他已经是一位成功的演奏者及乐队领队。

Soon after they started their casual shows together, the Saunders-Garcia band was playing to packed houses in small local clubs every weekend when the Dead wasn't touring.
不久之后他们开始自己的非正式演出,而当死之华乐队没有巡演的时候,桑德斯—加西亚的乐队每个周末在当地小酒吧的演出总是场场爆满。

The music on "Keystone Companians"' four discs is exactly what you'd expect from a Jerry Garcia side project: a mix of rock, blues and jazz with some bluegrass and soul mixed in.
《Keystone Companians》四张盘中的音乐正是你所期望的杰里·加西亚所擅长的曲风: 用一些蓝草和灵魂音乐混合摇滚,蓝调及爵士。

And, as with any jam session, the songs sometimes wander and might even include all those styles of music within the same tune.
而且随着即席演奏的加入,歌曲时而回荡而且甚至在同一个曲调中可能包含所有风格的音乐。

Many of the tracks have been released on various albums over the years, but this new collection includes new liner notes, a poster and a 28-page photo book, along with seven previously unreleased songs.
多年来许多乐曲已经收到各种专辑中,但这次的新收藏集包括新的内容简介,海报及28页的照片集,而且还有7首以前未发表的歌曲。

Among them: a take on the pop classic “How Sweet It Is.”
而且流行经典《How Sweet It Is》也囊括其中。

“Keystone Companions” is a fan's dream come true—it contains two complete sets equaling almost four hours of live music.
《Keystone Companians》对于粉丝们而言是梦想成真—它包含几乎相当于四个小时现场音乐的两套完整版。

The tracks were remastered to crystal clarity and among the selections include two Bob Dylan covers, Rodgers and Hart's “My Funny Valentine,” and a couple of originals including “Keepers,”an instrumental written by Merl Saunders and the band's bass player, John Kahn.
乐曲由crystal clarity重新灌录而且选择包括两张鲍勃·迪伦封面,罗杰斯和哈特的《My Funny Valentine》,还有一些包括莫丽尔·桑德斯和乐队贝斯手约翰·卡恩所创作的一首原创器乐曲《Keepers》。
