The beginning-of-the-week gigs at Southwest D.C.’s Westminster Church are billed as “Blue Monday Blues,” but this week’s will deliver a little more soul than most. “Jacques & Margie Live!” brings together the warbling vocals of Little Margie Clark, from the 1960s D.C. girl group the Jewels, and the saxophone tones of Jacques Johnson. The pair will also be joined by veteran trombonist, keyboardist, and arranger Bobby Felder, who got his start playing with Ray Charles.
