Vinyl is back! Each month on "Vinyl Watch," we list some of the most noteworthy new vinyl releases - including new albums, reissues, special-edition box sets and more. At JAZZIZ, we share the vinyl community's appreciation of the experience of collecting and playing vinyl records. As an increasing number of music fans discover the joy of vinyl, we hope these lists will serve as a starting point for new musical discoveries.

Singer/songwriter Bebel Gilberto's first new studio album in six years emerges from a period of loss and grief, during which she also lost her father, bossa nova pioneer João Gilberto. Showcasing her trademark boss-meets-electronics sound, Agora moves from funky songs to heartfelt ballads via captivating performances and wonderful songwriting. Produced by Thomas Bartlett, Agora is defined by Gilberto as "a little bit crazier, more mature and extremely sincere."
