​No, it will not.​ JACK can (more or less) only use ALSA devices. ALSA no
longer supports bluetooth (why not just totally escapes me, it seems one of
the most questionable ALSA changes in years).

It worked for before because mplayer opened the "default" ALSA device which
was PulseAudio's "pseudo-device", and then Pulse routed audio via bluetooth.

​In theory, Ardour or JACK could also open the "default" ALSA device to do
the same thing, but they are more demanding of the device, and in practice
it tends not to work. ​
