[Dixielandjazz] Uptempo vs cut time

Happened to stumble on a version of "After You've Gone"
that I like---Castle Jazz Band playing it at medium tempo
with lots of swing.

Which brings up my question.  How is "cut time" different
than simply playing fast?  I know there is a difference but
I need some help with an explanation.
