Shearing, 87, enthused, "I enjoyed it very much and I am very excited about it."
The London-born musician moved to the United States in 1947 and performed in the country for many years before settling in New York City in the late 1970s.
During his lengthy career, he played for U.S. Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan and was even mentioned in Jack Kerouac's 1957 novel On The Road.
His biggest hit was the late 1960's song September In The Rain.
