If It Happens is the most important album to me, which I recorded so far. The most important because my own, the most important because it contains music written especially for my guitar, the most important because I recorded it with my friends, the most important because I can sign on all sounds without any hesitation. Tunes: My Manuela, If It Happens and Waltz For R. arose in nineteen eighties, remaining ones I wrote recently. The world changed so much during past 20 years, me and my music probably much les... I think about this album as if it was a picture, which different pieces compose into one integrity.
I would like to thank all the musicians who recorded with me. Thank you for your positive energy, musical invention, emotions and work.
Special thanks to dr Kazimierz Cie¶lik, Jarek ¦mietana, Krzysztof Mech, Wiesław Rychlik, Marek Filipowicz and my Parents.

"My friendship with Jacek Korohoda dates back to the early eighties, when I met him at my jazz workshops. Even then Jacek distinguished himself from amongst the other students by his musicality and involvement in gaining a deeper understanding of the arcana of guitar playing. Thanks to his determination and perseverance, over the years he turned into an excellent and mature guitarist, with a very cultured style and beautiful, clean phrase. He is also a talented composer. He proves all this on first very own album, which I hereby wholeheartedly recommend."
