  • Jason Rae, Corinne's husband is dead!

    Jason Rae (1976 — 22 March 2008) was a Scottish musician, originally hailing from Aberdeen, who played saxophone for the eight-piece group Haggis Horns. The group have performed with Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, Mark Ronson, Nightmares On Wax and Corinne Bailey Rae herself. Rae had recorded with Bailey Rae, The New Mastersounds and Martina Topley-Bird (Quixotic). Rae began playing the trumpet as a child, and stated that his interest in jazz and funk was inspired by Michael Jackson's Off the Wall album. He was awarded the top prize in his class for Jazz when he graduated from the Leeds College of Music with Honors in 1989, which was also where he met the other members of the Haggis Horns.


    His body was found in a flat in the Hyde Park area of Leeds on Saturday 22nd March 2008. A pathologist report pointed to the cause of death as a "suspected drug overdose". A post-mortem examination on the musician's body was found to be inconclusive and police have confirmed that they are waiting on toxicity tests before stating the cause of death. It was reported that Bailey Rae was not in the flat at the time of his death.

    A 32 year-old man was arrested under suspicion of dealing recreational drugs to the musician but has since been released on bail.
