'Sophisticated Giant' is a 1977 jazz album by Dexter Gordon and an eleven-piece band playing tunes arranged by trombone player Slide Hampton.

A year after a successful tour through the United States Dexter recorded these six tracks for the album with assistance from other major trumpet players likes Woody Shaw and Benny Bailey.

Vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson sounds in superlative form on "The Moontrane," and "Fried Bananas." A Jazz classic made available again through Music On Vinyl.
