(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: British rock star Sting and American jazz musician Wayne Shorter received Sweden's Polar Music Prize at a royal ceremony on Thursday (June 15). The honor was founded in 1989 by ABBA manager Stig Andersson and the winners receive 1 million Swedish crowns. In awarding the prize to Sting, who found fame with The Police in the late 1970s, the committee said that as a composer Sting had "combined classic pop with virtuoso musicianship and an openness to all genres and sounds from around the world." For Shorter, the committee said the saxophonist and composer had "constantly sought out untravelled paths" in a career that included work in groups such as Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Miles Davis's Second Great Quintet and Weather Report.
