I don't think "Indie" was ever meant to describe what kind of record label your band releases music on. Who would ever call a jazz fusion band on an independent label an "indie band". Same as "alternative" it's just a word to describe a kind of style. It's as meaningless as the term "rock".
Usually was short for Indie Rock though, so yeh it wouldnt include jazz fusion bands.
Ive heard punk being called indie. Not much jazz they go for hip terminology like "outsider music" and taglines for something novel.
