The fact that early jazz instrumentalists adopted the harmonic format of the
blues (most often the 12-bar format) to the extent that it became, arguably,
the most common progression for improvisation of a happy nature, doesn't
negate the early history of the form (originally a vocal form) as correctly
stated by Dan.
