i'm not into classical jazz or blues, so don't know about that...but i've been thinking about it and i can't name any great albums.

A lot of classical composers actually produced their best, most inventive work in their later years: Beethoven, Shostakovich, Dvorak, etc. I think a lot of musicians and conductors have tended to stay strong as well.

In terms of jazz, blues, country, soul, pop: there are a lot of old performers who are still darn good - but off the top of my head, I can't think of anyone whose later work is better than what they did in their 20s and 30s.

Eno might be a good example. He's continued to make interesting music (the album he did with Paul Simon is especially good) - but none of it can eclipse what he did in the 70s and early 80s.
