I wouldn't say that using pentatonic defines blues. But some one with more
insight in musical theory might want to chime in here.

A funny coincident with the pentatonic scale is that yesterday I went over to
the Culture House (Kulturhuset) in Stockholm to listen to the first record [1]
with a blues song in it and it stroke me that it was very pentatonic except
for the trombone solo part with a few blue notes. It actually was more what I
today would call early Swedish jazz and not the blues scale dominated blues
that we often hear today.
