More on creativity in old age

Josh Kortbein cites Miles DavisBitches Brew, completed when Davis was at a relatively “old” age, as an example of great innovation late in a career. Also some Charles Mingus. I henceforth revise the question to: “are there any composers/instrumentalists who began their work at relatively older ages?” And the associated question (thanks Josh), are such late bloomers at a disadvantage?

Incidentally, the post I cited on 2-19 was a Howard Peirce post on rec.music.bluenote.
