Why would you want another recording of Tamuke, when you have many other versions? I don't know. Surprised But I recorded it, and many other pieces:

If you prefer a physical disc:

This recording is the culmination of years of study (obviously), and about 9 months of intense focus on the honkyoku on this recording. Part of the reason why the recording process took as long as it did was that I was not satisfied with the sound of the recording- that is until I decided to not utilize reverb (or much of it) and focus on making a clean, bare-bones, honest recording (the kind that you might hear from an ethnographic recording from the early 20th Century perhaps)... then everything snapped into focus and I started to get results that I felt did justice the sound. My focus in the recording is on the sound and feeling of the Rocky Mountains, that which I live next to here in Colorado. In my experience the sound flows into the mountains, and from the mountains... pines, streams, clouds, mist, rain, crags, peaks, bugs, birds, bears, and deer are the back drop to this disc, whose pieces come from a different mountainous environment on the other side of the globe.

I imagined, through the order of the pieces, an expedition that starts in a village, and moves through a mountain landscape and into a cool evening, maybe next to a lake, with the moon. For me, it is a spiritual journey, with sound, bamboo, mountains, tradition, and a path.
