"Enter the Sandman": Smooth Jazz Version

I came across an intriguing mashup/rearrangement of the Metallica song "Enter the Sandman" on Youtube created by Los Angeles musician and composer Andy Rehfeldt. The concert video in question retains Mettalica lead singer James Hetfield's vocals, but Rehfedlt replaced the metal with a smooth jazz arrangement that is both hilarious and, well, musically compelling:

Rehfeldt has a number of other unexpected rearrangements on his YouTube site, including a death metal rendition of "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong and a reggae version of "Detroit Rock City" by Kiss that are worth your time, unless you would rather spend your free moments surfing the Internet for industrial supplies.

Your choice, Bubba.
