No one ever said it was easy to program a jazz festival. But it used to be a lot less complicated than it is now. In the 1950s and '60s, putting together an event like this weekend's Playboy Jazz Festival meant picking from a pool of talent that included Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan and Charles Mingus.
