Doc Cheatham was a better trumpeter when he was about 85 than when he was young:
"Hurt" by Johnny Cash certainly beats his early stuff, recorded when he was about 69:
Imo Mississippi John Hurt and Bob Dylan have made higher quality recordings in their 70s than when they were young. People who come to Buddy Guy from a rock perspective probably like his work in his 70s better than his work when he was young, although I think he peaked at about 45. I think Fred McDowell peaked shortly before he died at 68.
Willie Nelson was about 70 and Keith Richards about 60 as of this:
Haven't heard Richards sing better than that. Or Nelson, really.

One of the most fascinating entertainers in US show business. And probably the only one whose late musical production (from his 70's) sounded more interesting than the oeuvres from younger years. Or are there other, competitive, examples of that?
