she might, Samantha Sidley
couldn't concentrate on her studies
yesterday. The Berklee music student was
flying high following her two-week stint
at the Algonquin Hotel's Oak Room. ''I'm
still kind of in awe," she acknowledged
yesterday. ''It's such a
legendary place." Sidley, who's barely
20, got the gig by winning the hotel's
first annual Young Artist Competition.
Her performance earned raves from the
critics, including The New York Times'
Stephen Holden, who
invoked Billie Holiday's name in
praising Sidley's phrasing. The
chanteuse also got a nice note from
cabaret diva Julie Wilson,
who attended one of her shows. What's
next? Not ''American Idol." ''No," she
said. ''I'm not a pop singer. I'm a jazz
singer. But my friend Katharine
McPhee is one of the finalists,
so I'm happy for her."
