There are also many today's bands making good things in 4 bars even if they are not called blues. A.p.a.t.t. is a little example of avant music with blues inside. Then if we think to Pink Floyd and their today's followers like Mostly Autumn or RPWL, how can we deny the blues roots of prog? Only because Genesis didn't much blues sticking on British folk?

This is exactly what i am talking about.  You are confusing the blues influence on rock with prog incorporating blues.

If there's an influence, it is expressed in some way in the final producr, otherwise how can you say that there's an influence?

This is a very good viewpoint and one that brings several questions to mind. I like your observation in reference to today's bands. That is totally evident with artists on the Cuneiform label. Maybe not so much during the 80's ...but I know that in recent years the "avant music" with a Blues inside is circulating mostly on the underground music scene.

I haven't followed the discussion at all but a forgotten band from the seventies called Stray Dog might fit the bill. Snuffy Walden was the guitarist and they were on ELP's Manticore label. The debut is worth checking out. Also I'm sure Blodywn Pig have been mentioned but they would also be my idea of 'progressive blues'.

Sweet Maree and Mercury Blues, both from Fly Like An Eagle the album (1976) by Steve Miller Band, are beautiful examples of proggy blues.
Also, s/t debut from 1968 by Rhinoceros, s/t debut from 1969 by Blind Faith and so on.
 
There were a lot of progressive blues actually.

Prog Disco exists, why not Prog Blues.
But Prog Polka, I'm not sure if that exists yet.
