Again, my perspective

Dixieland is an older jazz style. Certainly there are current groups playing it but stylistically it is very similar to that played in the 1920s.

Big band is more difficult, but mention of swing makes it easier. I consider the swing era of Miller, the Dorsey brothers, etc to be "old". But big bands like Carla Bley, Charlie Hayden, Sun Ra, etc. are quite different and I wouldn't call them old.

So it is not the date of the recording but rather the time of the style that defines old from new for me.
