tania maria is another one--she's awesome. and joanne brackeen has an album called "breath of brazil" which has a great version of aguas de marco(waters of march) on it. eddie gomez and one of my favorite brazilian drummers--duduka da fonseca is on that album. george duke has a nice cd called i think "a brazilian love affair" with a couple of really nice tunes on it with flora purim, but what really steals the show is an awesome take of cravo y canela--a samba in 3, which just swings its ass off--in a brazilian samba way of course. check out some stuff by either airto or his wife flora purim and also their band--fourth world. and how about some of the old return to forever stuff with chick corea, airto, flora and stanley clarke!

also and they aren't necessarily pianists, but check out: stan getz with jobim, lee konitz--brazilian rhapsody, astrud gilberto, claudio roditi(one of those guys who can play anything-salso, brazilian and jazz) samba manhattan style, trio da paz (with duduka), and sergio mendez and humberto pascaol(?spelling). piano is not really a traditional brazilian instrument--i mean not like the guitar. so, search for stuff that is a little more modern like the chick corea rtf stuff and the roditi album. trio da paz is a guitar trio with bass and drums.
if you want to go old school check out some of the escolas de samba (samba schools) playing samba enredo. this is the carnival style samba that may have hundreds of drummers in the ensemble.
good luck
