Il accompagne fréquemment des artistes de variété, mais doit surtout réduire fortement ses activités pour raisons de santé.

Later in the 1950s he worked often with Bud Freeman and Eddie Condon. He also played with Charlie Ventura, Red Norvo, Clark Terry, Ralph Sutton, Sy Oliver, and Doc Severinsen. He freelanced during the 1960s with many bands and in the 1970s he started recording for Harry Lim under the Famous Door record label. He was a great well schooled drummer able to swing any band with which he performed. Buddy Rich and Mousey were friends and Buddy thought highly of his playing. Mousey had a bad stroke in 1980 but fully recovered over time, and played up until his death in 1988. He died of heart and kidney failure. (en)
