New Wine in Old Bottles is an album by saxophonist Jackie McLean with the Great Jazz Trio pianist Hank Jones, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Tony Williams, recorded in 1978 for the Japanese East Wind label. Reviewing in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies 1981, Robert Christgau called New Wine in Old Bottles the best McLean album in over a decade and said, the saxophonist's work here surpasses that on his European SteepleChase outings because the rhythm section of Hank Jones. It was an inspired idea to match alto saxophonist Jackie McLean with the Great Jazz Trio, a regularly working unit on record and in concert led by the outstanding pianist Hank Jones, joined by two first call players, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Tony Williams. Although the word again is added to McLean's two originals, the barnburner Appointment in Ghana and Little Melonae, they aren't very different from earlier recordings in concept.

However, the tunes are old by 1978 and Jackie McLean had a working group that he was interested in recording with. He wasn't practicing all that much at this point the 1970s as he was focused on his efforts to build the Artists Collective an educational institution in Hartford Connecticut and was founding the Jazz department at the Hartt School of Music. The 70s, which I once heard Prof. McLean refer to as the Dark Ages, and the period in which this record was made, were a tough time on jazz musicians. Being asked to make a nostalgia album for the Japanese audience clearly wasn't a high point for many of the musicians on this album. It shows.

It is perfectly acceptable table wine but an unequal contest versus well-aged Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 1959, old wine in old bottles. With exceptions which you will no doubt throw at me, musicians do not generally age well. Those still standing are ushered into the Hall of Fame, dined at the White House, bestowed with honours, rightly given the recognition they richly deserve, but that is entirely separate from their playing.
