and I have a problem with that!
1) You haven't named an artist or work or subgenre that you love. Red flag.
2) You've got mechanical chops. Leverage that and put theory far on the back-burner. Instead, put in a lot of time listening to and playing blues. (There are lots of subgenres of blues. Form opinions! Change opinions over time!)
Learn I-IV-V patterns, both major and minor, both chords & bass lines, with your left hand; and, melodic phrases with your right. You must learn to "borrow" (steal) phrases from masters, and then, to anticipate each phrase's sound (emotional resonance), and then, to surprise and delight yourself with variations on the predictable.
Learn to HATE overly scale-driven playing. Learn to play charming (parts of) solos consisting of sequences based around JUST ONE NOTE (using volume dynamics, note duration, off-timing, lazy vs. assertive phrasing), and similarly, to go off on little "story-telling" journeys using just 2 or 3 notes at first.
3) With conventional major blues, it's important to know how to use (in melodies) the flat 3rd (often in transition to the major 3rd), and, the flat 7, and, to avoid the 2, and to use the 6 somewhat sparingly (well, it depends...). Give yourself lots of time to become a real owner of this.
4) The transition from (improvisational) blues to jazz should happen organically, ie, once you can play blues with groove and feeling. As you develop, if/when you start feeling the pull of more and more out-of-scale notes, not just as passing notes (a nice sized subject on its own), but as "first class" notes in lines, that's when to start learning more complex chords & chord patterns and the scales that work with them.
I am not a super talented (guitar) player. In my 40's, I found myself experiencing these episodes of mastery, sometimes while practicing alone and others while jamming with others, where every phrase, every note, was "on purpose" and deeply satisfying, and I started realizing how much of my playing prior to that was not real music making, even if it was a necessary precursor. So, what I've written above is motivated in large part by what I'd wished I had been nudged towards when much younger.
