"Sophisticated Lady" is a jazz standard, composed as an instrumental in 1932 by Duke Ellington.

This piano solo arrangement is as recorded and performed by famous pianist Liberace, in concerts he gave throughout the world. It has never before been in print.

Duke Ellington and His Orchestra introduced "Sophisticated Lady" in 1933 with an instrumental recording of the song that featured solos by Toby Hardwick on alto sax, Barney Bigard on clarinet, Lawrence Brown on trombone and Ellington on piano. The recording entered the charts on 27 May 1933 and rose to number three.

Singer Adelaide Hall recorded with Ellington in 1927, 1932, and 1933. The song appeared on the soundtrack of the 1989/90 documentary celebrating her life entitled Sophisticated Lady
